In need of very little inroduction, Peter King is one of the world’s greatest saxophonists. Although he now concentrates on his work as a solo artist and with his regular Quartet, Peter has worked with such legends as Bud Powell, Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Milt Jackson, Lalo Schifrin, Frank Foster’s ‘new’ Count Basie Band and the Ray Charles Orchestra. He has also recorded with Hampton Hawes, Al Haig, Philly Joe Jones, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, and many others, including Red Rodney, who said this of Peter. “He’s got that natural growl in his playing – yet he’s soft and beautiful when he wants to be.”
Tonight he joins the Andy Bunting Trio and is presented in conjunction with Jazzlines. Not to be missed!
